Occupy Movement, 1921 style!
Interesting film made just when the Great Depression was in it's infancy and a march to Washington was organized to protest it, and demand more jobs, food and clothing for poor people. Seems like a lot of people got behind this, the law seemed to let a lot of the paraders go through without any problems (a lot of cops seem to join in) Everyone does convene in Washington, but there are just shots of people standing around. Doesn't seem like there was any central rally or anything (at least according to this film). Not bad, definitely historically interesting.
